Cape Town - A 22-year-old Free State man who allegedly kidnapped a woman for three days and raped her near Paul Roux is set to appear in the Senekal Magistrate’s Court later on Monday.

He allegedly kidnapped the 18-year-old woman on the night of June 30, according to Sergeant Mmako Mophiring.

It is alleged that on the first night, the man took her to the mountain where he raped her and then took her to his house just before dawn. The woman eventually managed to flee from the man's house. 

Mophiring said the woman apparently went home where she hid herself for five days. 

She decided to report the incident to police on Wednesday night and the man was arrested on Thursday.
